This would be my suggestion also, with one suggestion if the app is 
sometimes run offline: require the application to login over the web at 
least once, at which time it could download privileges into a 
preferences file which could be read at startup for offline logins. 
Some simple encoding of the privileges in the prefs file should be 
sufficient unless you think they are likely to be hacked by your end 
users.

HTH,
